What’s In My Bag?

what's in my purse
I just switched over to a new handbag, and thought it would be fun to do a What’s In My Bag post! I always love sneaking a peek at what people carry around.

1. Fossil wallet (mine is an old design, here is a similar style)
2. Warby Parker Webb glasses (read about my experience buying them here and here)
3. Two EOS lipbalms and Blistex – one can never have enough!
4. Wet-naps
5. Hotel lotion bottle that I refill with my own
6. Breathe Easy essential oil blend for bad allergy days (also comes in this awesome set!)
7. Pill container
8. Compact mirror
9. Girl pills
10. Pearl double finger ring and cross necklace
11. Hair ties
12. Mini eyeliner and tinted lip stick (full size eyeliner here)
13. Old mint container that I carry bobby pins in
14. Halls cough drops
15. Pens
16. Tweezers and  jumbo nail clippers (using a nail file makes my skin crawl)
17. Keys – Jeep key, Apple keychain, key to my parents, post office key, house key, and flashlight
18. Umbrella

4. Sleep in the cutest Wildfox Little Mermaid Beach Tee
5. Explore the island in these Julie flats from ShoeMint (join here!)
6. Eat these watermelon jalapeño popsicles
7. Paint the scenery with this small Winsor & Newton watercolor palette
8. Don a simple gold band
9. Make friends away from home

A Summer Gone By

I’m realizing that I’ve been pretty lackadaisical about documenting my life, both on Estate and for real life. Here’s to trying to fix that:
horses
The two horses I get to hang out with, Buttons and Wimpy.

greek yogurt, raw local honey and grape nuts
What is it about layering food in a mason jar that makes it look so good?

revlon just bitten lip stains
Went on a lip stain buying spree one day. You can get them here, ‘Rendezvous’ is my current favorite.

lakeside summer
A midsummers day in Vermont.

black cat
The resident cutie guy.

black cat
I couldn’t post just one!

birthday drink at chili's
Birthday drink and peculiar little sister.

painted nails
First attempt at Goons nails.

small town carnival
The smallest little carnival there ever was.


Someone is always taking photos of themselves on my phone and iPad (at least one of us is good at documenting!).
